I guess it isn't too early to post about my most probably favorite year in my entire life, 2010!
Well first of all here is my current FaceBook status: 2010.Was.AWESOME! Why? I got from just THAT girl to the person I have never dreamed of becoming. Who knew it could all happen in one year?
The person that would never dream of becoming in year 2009 would be a cake artist.
I never knew I could reach that high... But amazingly, I did.
It does feel rather awesome thinking about it now...
In year 2009 and part of year 2010 all I wanted was just to fit in... Yeah, why did I want to?
I guess it just felt important at that time, now I DON'T care at ALL!
I don't find it important (At all! Well... I do have SOME very close friends that accept me the way I am and I like that fact that they like the real ME not some fake outer shell that I tried putting on a few years back which of course didn't work!) to fit in with the well, cool and boring people who are my age that are always bored ( I found the 'cool' people and me that was trying to fit in boring and I was bored when I tried being someone that I can't.)?
I kinda like being different this days.. Somehow! I feel unique and special not awkward and different.
I am glad I finally managed to break out of that 'mold' and find myself again this year.
Not only did I just find myself but I also managed to find my passion and/or the 'thing' that I am supposed to be doing in life.
Instead of just describing my self as a un-schooler (Long story!) I feel more comfortable calling my self a cake artist... It's amazing! I looked back at my cakes that I made earlier this year and compared to the one that I just finished making and delivering today!
Check out my latest cake: Tiger Lily Cake
On my cake decorating path this year I stumbled upon other arts that I felt passionate about like paper craft, polymer clay-ing and almost every other type!
I love art, art is beautiful...
I managed to survive and conquer the Wilton courses 1, 2, 3 and 4, The 5 days Squire's Kitchen intensive diploma (Man! That was some CRAZY cuckoo 5 days! I would have gone mad and insane if it were 6!), 2 3 day long CupcakeKarens cupcake booths these cake-y events? (I am horrible at finding good words for sentences!) year!
I plan to conquer more the next...
I kinda shocked? amazed? dazzled? (One of those type of words!) myself when I see how far I have gone within a year...
Just this afternoon I was using my laptop in my caking room and my tiger lilies were behind me.
Every time I turned and looked at my tiger lilies, I keep thinking to myself if I really DID make them... It just didn't seem possible, but it was and it was there right in front of me.
I shed a happy and a proud tear... It was an amazing thought.
I guess nothing is impossible even when you have lost your self, it is possible to find your self again and this time, stronger..
Haha! I feel so wise all of a sudden!! Yeesh...
Well all I wanted to say was...
Year 2010 was a life changing year for me!
I hope the next year would be just as awesome as this one, or I will just make it be!
Merry Christmas and a Hair-pee new year!
